Thursday, Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day.. so where's the best place to get a coffee buzz in the Valley?
 
While it's certainly debatable, Yelp compiled this list of favorites from its users.
 
Smooth Brew Coffee has something many of your mom and pop coffee shops don't have -- a drive-thru.  
 
WHAT YELPERS SAY: Omg omg! Good coffee? Cute location? Food? Space? Patio? Great service? YES! You've come to the right place.  Please please please do yourself a favor and find this place before going to a chain "coffee shop."  -- Leslie A. from Scottsdale.
 
IF YOU GO: 1447 East McDowell Rd. Phoenix   
 
 
According to Lux's website, they not only hand roast all of their coffee in house, they do it enthusiastically!  The beans are from Ethiopia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, Sumatra And Brazil.
 
WHAT YELPERS SAY:  Come one, come all to lux for homemade baked goods, coffee, food, alcohol, people watching, music discovering, friend making, life purpose finding. -- Sam S. from Phoenix
 
IF YOU GO: 4400 N Central Ave. Phoenix   
 
 
You know this place is cool before you walk the through the door.  Located in an old gas station, Copper Star also serves breakfast and brunch.  It also has a drive-thru for coffee lovers on the run.
 
WHAT YELPERS SAY:  Did not disappoint! I loved loved their lavender mocha! I also asked for pastries, which she then preceded to tell me that since it was my first time, I get a free one. Woohoo!!!  -- Maria M. from Phoenix
 
IF YOU GO: 4220 N 7th Ave, Phoenix 
 
 
This place is a taste of Africa in central Phoenix and it is serious about its coffee. A T Oasis serves 100% Ethiopian coffee and imports the coffee beans directly from Ethiopian farmers. 
 
WHAT YELPERS SAY:  Whoa!  Ginger spiced Ethiopian coffee ~ceremony~, served out of a gourd, with incense & free biscotti...I think we found our new breeding grounds for conscious creative collaboration! -- N.R. from Chicago
 
IF YOU GO: 4613 E Thomas Rd Phoenix 
         
 
Several Yelpers raved about the Be Sammy sandwich which consists of scrambled eggs, american cheese and mayo on a grilled onion roll.  Something else to note about this place?  It's on UberEats so you can order delivery!
 
WHAT YELPERS SAY:  One of my favorite crannies to spend time in. Wear some comfy joggers! Bring your laptop, sip on fresh brews (the americanos here are legendary), relax and love yourself. -- Kail P. from Apache Junction
 
IF YOU GO: 214 E Roosevelt St, Phoenix  
 
Or, if you want a little something for nothing, these Valley spots are serving up deals on coffee day.
